My recent career move has left me working from home more often. A new career means a new desk. I had my eye on West Elm’s White Parsons Desk for the past two years and after convincing myself I needed more workspace I caved in and made the purchase. From a small dark wooden desk to a shiny lacquered one I went. After the parsons desk completely transformed my space, there was no looking back. A TPS white filing cabinet from CB2 provides extra storage and sleek look while a Happy Chic by Jonathan Adler Crescent Heights Armchair compliments the space with its’ bold color. And so the accessorizing began….
I wanted to add height to my apartment by building up with shelves. I needed shelves on a budget and found some simple white ones at my local Rainbow store for just $6 each. I found the brackets at the same store for under $5 a piece. I loved the pattern of the brackets, but they needed some jazzing up. With some priming and spray paint they became a bit more fun and a bit more Lindsey.
Etsy artwork given to me on my last day by my lovely coworkers keeps me going and CB2’s gold pig bookends adds life to my shelves. Mason jars are an inexpensive help keep me organized. The Container’s Store brocade desk collection was the perfect fit for my new office look. A Sugar Paper Notepad helps to keep me on track and focused, while my DIY gold polka-dot lamp provides light for late night typing.
It’s amazing how a new clean space can give you a new perspective. Even though it’s just part of my living room, this once small corner with a pathetic little desk has transformed into a new “office”. Now all I need is a booster seat so my little assistant Chip can sit next to me and catch up on all his paperwork.
